About
As you begin the Roguey Walk Experience, you will arrive at the stunning Fairy Bridges – sea stacks thousands of years old, and and a star attraction of the Wild Atlantic Way Coastline. With scenic views for 360 degrees you can see back to Mullaghmore, County Sligo and across Donegal Bay to the magical Slieve League Cliffs. This is the playground of the legendary Little Folk, which coupled with the spectacular formations spanning the edge of the roaring ocean, prompted the local name “The Fairy Bridges”. While you’re there, take a seat on Bundoran’s own Wishing Chair. It is said that many of the town’s famous visitors over the years have sat here overlooking the wild Atlantic Ocean – from poet William Allingham to golfer Christy O’Connor Jr to Viscount Enniskillen to 10 times world champion surfer Kelly Slater – they’re all believed to have sat in Bundoran’s famous Wishing Chair located at the Fairy Bridges at Tullan Strand. Sit, make your wish, relax & enjoy your time in Bundoran.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very popular beach and surfing spot. The diary bridge is a very short walk from the car park and a short walk down a hill. It’s beauty and fun to look down in to the rocks and the water. A lot of us stood there watching the brave surfers in the freezing water. Definitely worth a visit.

Fortunately the weather was beautiful. Walked the Roguey Cliff walk and finished at Fairy Bridges. Sat and watched the surfers and the dolphins. Really idyllic. However quite poignant too when you see the various memorials there. Strongly recommend it but be careful with small children as there is a sheer drop to the ocean at the Fairy Bridges.

Beautiful. Crystal clear waters and gorgeous scenery. The fairy bridges are very close to the car park so easy viewed for even someone with reduced mobility( although not easy to get close)

The fairy bridges are located next to the sea, along a walking trail, which is paved, making it relatively easy to navigate. One can continue along the walk to the village, and enjoy the beautiful vistas along the way.
There is a free parking lot at the northern end, but space is limited. Many of the spaces were taken up by small campers, making it a little tight for getting in and out of the car. There is a separate "pay for" lot at the end of the free one.
The lot is certainly very convenient for the walkway.

The Fairy Bridges were very busy with tourists. It's relatively easy to get down to them to see them, but it is ground terrain, so be sure to have supportive footwear.

The vistas are stunning on a bright sunny day.

When you take the coastal walk from the town after the water park and turn the corner looking at the veiw which I have ti say are stunning your eyes are drawn to the fairy pools

One wouldn't want to be going to Bundoran for a shopping trip as not one clothes shop or many shops can be found only a charity shop and knick knack shop.
But Bundoran does sport a beautiful beach a beautiful cliff walk. Bundoran would be a good place to use as a base and travel around Donegal because Donegal is a magnificent County.

The whole walk took a little longer than expected but very much worth it. The fairy bridges were a unique site. It was a beautiful sunny (yet windy) day so we were able to sit in the chair for a while and drink in the amazing view. The beaches and dunes are just stunning.

This is a lovely stop off on the Tullan Strand coastal walk, not enough to organise a whole trip over though.
